    Our Fall Book

    I am delighted to share one of my favorite stories with you. Set in a landscape peopled by magicians and fantastic talking animals, Salman Rushdie’s Haroun and the Sea of Stories tells the story of twelve-year-old Haroun as he sets out on an adventure to restore his father’s gift of storytelling by reviving the poisoned Sea of Stories. On the way, he encounters many foes, all intent on draining the sea of all its storytelling powers. I hope you enjoy this story as much as I do.
